Being able to other compilers on the tree is also useful for
something. We've got lots of gccisms around that aren't serving any
purpose -- the idea is to get rid of them so that any C99 compiler
will work. __FUNCTION__ is one of several things I was going to get
rid of. The next step (as requested by Christos) was to get rid of the
unwrapped use of __attribute__ etc. -- you cut that out of my message,
I'll note, as well as my mention of *why* this is wanted.
